In this study the pathogenicity and antimicrobial sensitivity of St. gallolyticus were searched. 141 samples of diseased and recently dead pigeons of different ages were collected and subjected to bacterial examination in order to isolate St. gallolyticus. Sixteen strains were isolated and identified at recovery rate of 11.35%. All… CONTINUE READING
